The first volume in the series was published in June 2008.The present volume, second in the series, brings together fifteen rich, informative and well-researched articles which were previously published in `CLIO`, the interdisciplinary journal of the Corpus Research Institute, Kolkata.

However, the volume throws light especially on women`s history, which has emerged recently as a new field of study. CONTENTS: Editorial 1. Women in West Bengal Panchayat/Chittabrata Palit 2.
